23-Year-Old Croatian Footballer Marin Cacic Dies After Sudden Collapse During Training


Tragically, another ‘coincidence’ has struck the European football world.

The latest tragedy involves 23-year-old Croatian footballer Marin Cacic.

The NK Nehaj Sinj defender collapsed during training due to apparent heart failure. Cacic was rushed to the hospital and placed into a coma after sustaining the injuries during the training session.

Sadly, the young player passed away on December 23rd.

Mirror reported on the tragedy:

Croatian footballer Marin Cacic has tragically died three days after being placed into a coma following his sudden collapse at training with his side NK Nehaj Sinj.

After he collapsed during the session, he was immediately rushed to a hospital where the 23-year-old was diagnosed with heart failure.

He was then put in a comatose state as doctors fought tirelessly to save the young man’s life, though their efforts sadly failed and Cacic was pronounced dead on December, 23.

Sport World News added:

NK Nehaj also posted on social networks, and sent a clear message on Facebook: “Marin, Senj and your Nehaj are with you !!!

Just fight, because you only know that way!! I know very well that there is no difference between training and a game to you, but add gas to this” game “and win !!!” Apparently, the majority believes that the reason for the increasing collapse of football players is the vaccine against COVID.

There have been many cases in the world of sports lately, but we still do not want to enter other spheres, and we still hope that in the end this story will end in a positive way. One of the admins on the club’s website decided to respond to people who had various theories as the reason for this outcome: “Hello, please do not write or discuss any comments about Covid on this page.

At the moment this is the least important and all such comments will be removed!” “This is my personal page and I have nothing against your personal opinion, but please do not use my page for discussions and your personal views.”

“This is a page that follows the events in NK Nehaj, and unfortunately one of them is this one related to our player. Thank you! Admin ” It is unfortunate that such situations happen from month to month, and we hope that we will have as few such cases as possible.

As of writing, there is no confirmation of Cacic’s COVID-19 inoculation status.
